This December the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth begin a series of celebrations to mark the bicentennial of the Congregation.
As SCNs stand on the cusp of their third century of ministry, they celebrate a journey of faith over hundreds of years, looking toward the future with confidence in God’s call. Throughout the world, SCN family members are involved in diverse ministries, meeting needs in health care, education, social services and pastoral ministries. Just as Mother Catherine Spalding, the SCN foundress, has been recognized for visionary leadership, Sisters approach ministries today with that same mindset, with an eye on the needs of the times and the needs of the future.
As the third Congregation of women religious founded in the United States, SCNs celebrate with gratitude, giving honor to a strong heritage of fidelity and service. Rooted in Nelson County, Ky., SCN ministries now embrace the world. Today, there are Sisters and Associates in the U.S., Belize, Botswana, Africa, Nepal, and across India.
